What if I wanted to switch to trofranil instead of tofranil-PM because of the cost
What is the difference in tofranil and tofranil-PM?
Added 10 Sep 2009:
I have been on tofranil-pm for years and it has been very effective. As I look towards going on medicare and what is paid and what you have to pay out of pocket when you hit the gap, I wondered about switching to toframil since it has a generic form and tofranil-pm does not. It would cost me a lot less money.
Are the two drugs, tofranil-pm and tofranil equivent in their effect.

Tofranil is Imipramine hydrochloride.
Tofranil PM is available as imipramine pamoate. The 75-, 100-, 125-, and 150-mg capsules contain imipramine pamoate equivalent to 75, 100, 125, and 150 mg of imipramine hydrochloride.
Tofranil and Tofranil PM just contain different salts of the drug imipramine.
